Joe Burrow has proven himself to be a clutch postseason performer, as evidenced by his 5-1 record in the playoffs over the last two seasons, including a AFC Championship Game victory on the road. Burrow has led the Cincinnati Bengals to five postseason victories, as many as the franchise previously had since their inception in 1968. 

There’s no doubt Burrow has changed the fortunes of the Bengals franchise, starting with his impressive record in the month of January. Burrow has never lost an NFL game in January, going 7-0 in his five starts that month. Including his college career at LSU, Burrow is 9-0 in January.

With Burrow putting his perfect January record on the line in the AFC title game Sunday, let’s take a look at his starts in each of the January games.
